In response to Bungalow-Bill's comment:
Ok, so Edelman has outperformed Wes in what 2 games this year versus Wes outperforming Edelman in 9? Yup Edelman proved he's much better! Ha. Edelman is lucky the punt he fumbled bounced right back to him...
Don't post actual facts for RallyC, he doesn't know what to do with those.
Last I checked... these were the facts
Targets: Welker 95, Edelman 89
Receptions: Welker 65, Edelman 61
Welker 5th with 9
Edelman 34th with 4
Welker 26th with 679
Edelman 33rd with 610
Welker 22nd with 302
Edelman 38th with 251
The BIGGIE... 1st Downs
Welker 10th with 42 = 65% of receptions are for 1st downs
Edelman 42nd with 28 = 46% of receptions are for 1st downs
The simple version: DYAR means a wide receiver with more total value. DVOA means a wide receiver with more value per play.
Welker DYAR = 181 Rank 16th, DVOA = 11.1% Rank 24th
Edelman DYAR = 53 Rank 51st, DVOA = -5.0% Rank 55th
It's undeniable.... The Patriots would be a better team with Welker here.
I don't get why a few people need to start threads to try and disprove any of this. Instead of getting on me for stating this fact time and again when these silly threads are created, why not get on those people who are trying to save face from all the ridiculous Amendola better then Welker threads earlier in the season. That's what this is all about anyways. Their ego has been hurt and now are turning to Edelman to help support their previous claims that they were wrong about with Amendola because he has done NOTHING!
The Pats wouldn't be a better team if Wes was still here. It would still be"shut down Welker and you shut down the Pats" if he were still here. On, top of that he wouldn't have as many TD's, as the first or second option here, as he does as the third option in Denver! You can throw all the stats out there you want but they are still just lies!
